I would definitely recommend eating at L’Abattoir!!! The food was delicious and it definitely sparked conversation about some of the different flavor combinations going on in the dishes. The service was also on point and professional. The only comment would be the choice of music. Gangster rap would be fine at a lounge or nightclub bit I thought the ambiance and food combination begged for something a little more conservative.
Everything was absolutely amazing and made for such a great date night.
Our meal was perfect. Staff were fantastic. Can’t wait to go back.
All the staff was friendly. Our server was very knowledgeable and gave us an excellent wine recommendation. The food was exceptional. It was also very rich, a little goes a long way. The space is very urban but the lighting warms it up nicely. Sound travels upstairs from the bar quite a bit. The music was also a bit odd and often sounded like a tv was on instead.
Very good environment, good service, steak is wonderful, fish is just ok, noise is moderate not so quiet as I thought, foe the food value, food price is quite expensive especially for the scallop appetizer and fish. It is recommend for only special occasions not for everyday dinner.
L’Abattoir consistently provides great food, friendly and excellent service and good value for dinner... always a real pleasure to go there for dinner!! Mike and Joanne
Great experience at L'abattoir. Never disappoints. If I had to say one thing it would be the music. Music that is background not foreground and is a little loud would be preferred.
The drinks were amazing, our server was charismatic, and the food was impeccable as always. 100% recommend the oysters to start!
The food and service were outstanding. Will be back.
Wonderful experience. Thoroughly enjoyed every bite. The staff were very knowledgeable. We will be back.
As always, delicious food, knowledgeable and fun staff, and wine pairings on point.
Fantastic- as always! Looking forward to our next visit.
An amazing meal, great service, always a treat. Highly recommend.
The service was excellent and she went above and beyond. The food was excellent and presentation was beautiful
Thoughtful and tasty food, excellent service as always. L'abattoir never disappoints.
Great service and ambience. The food was amazing and drinks very unique and delicious.
We went here for my birthday dinner! Excellent service and Everything we had was amazing, special mention: the baked oysters are probably the best baked oysters I’ve ever had. Highly recommend. I also had the steak Diane as my main, and the steak was perfectly cooked.
The food is always a amazing. Enough said.... thanks for the great service. Thanks to @malhussainiyvr for the recommendation
Andrew (sommelier) made the evening.
Minimum 50 chara...
Excellent always :-)
We had a welcoming experience!! Even within the current times, it was so much fun to interact with staff, as it was a compliment to the fantastic food, which was done to perfection!! (Sable fish, venison)
I've been here several times and its never failed to be great! Will definitely be back.
My wedding anniversary.
We loved it. Super tasty, elegant and great service!
L'ab was terrific. A great team of people work there and the food is so amazingly delicious. Our server was always close by when we needed her. It is expensive so we probably won't be back soon but it certainly was memorable.
Food was amazing! The baked oysters were my favourite. The service was ok. The server was slow and didn’t come to the table often
Great experience, very quick service and delicious food!
The staff at l’Abattoir could not have done a better job. First - it was a very safe environment, with multiple layers of social distancing and protection in place. The dinner experience itself was amazing. From the recommendations on dishes, to the execution of the food and cocktails, wine suggestions, all the way through to dessert and amaro. I would very rarely call a dinner “perfect”, but the entire team at l’Abattoir should be commended for knocking this one out of the park.
Great food and excellent service in an elegant environment. Would definitely go back.
We ordered seafood dishes - oysters & scallops for appetizers & sablefish & Halibut for entrees. All well done and not overcooked. The desserts were really really good.
Wonderful atmosphere. Great service from Andrew. Magnificent food!
We had a fantastic dinner. The way the tables are set up keeps diners safe and I hope the staff feel safer now that patrons have to wear masks when not sitting at their table. To those customers who still walked through without them - I see you and I judge you haha.
Everything from the cocktails to appetizers, entrees and wine were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Don't forget to save room for the gorgeous bread basket they bring out and dessert of course.
This is our favourite restaurant when we want to treat ourselves but even sitting at the bar for a snack and drink is a great option.
What an incredible birthday experience for my best friend and I. Amazing service from an incredibly attentive and friendly waiter along with some of the best food I’ve ever had. Will be back 10/10 thank you for helping to make such a memorable birthday during these tough times!
We loved our experience! We love dry red wines, and they had an incredible cab franc! I’m gluten and dairy free, and they were able to accommodate both without sacrificing flavor. We enjoyed the raw tuna for an appetizer. My husband got the halibut. I got the venison. Both were impressive!! I’ve eaten a lot of venison. It’s a lean meat, but this venison dish was incredibly tender and melted in my mouth like a beef tenderloin. We had a spectacular experience!!
L’Abattoir is my go to restaurant when I want have a great meal and drinks with friends. The food is consistently excellent and the service has always been wonderful, both personable and very knowledgeable. On my last visit the quality of cocktails seems to be even higher than I remember - a definite plus during these days of COVID and social isolation.
Wonderful service and fantastic food, thank you everyone at L'Abattoir!
Everything was perfect. Thank you for making our Saturday night out a success.
We celebrated our anniversary here and the service/food was amazing. Will definitely be back! Highly recommend the baked oysters and steak Diane.
Always have a wonderful time, it's our favourite spot in Vancouver.
One of my favourite place in Vancouver. Great food, service and a relaxed ambiance
